On the hottest day of the year, an unknown virus spreads throughout inner-city Philadelphia. The infected victims, crazed by dehydration, begin attacking other residents of the neighborhood in gruesome ways. When the military is brought in to contain the situation, but realize they can’t come up with a vaccine quickly enough, they fence off the area and let everyone die.

Stuck in the basement of their building and separated from their family members, a group of locals band together to try to survive.

Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me is a darkly humorous horror film, seemingly ripped from the headlines, where government officials make life and death decisions based on the race and class of the victims of a terrifying viral pandemic. The film is a unique blend of satire, social commentary, rambunctious violence, and goofy jokes and animation.

Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me will begin its virtual theater run at The Colonial Theatre on August 21st, 2020. On Friday August 28th at 5 PM EST, Jack Warren, the Colonial’s Engagement Coordinator, will host a Virtual Happy Hour on the Colonial’s Facebook Page with ‘Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me’s’ director Adam Lippe.
